Thapelo Boiler Maker Class Fund

For Thapelo, the best way to ensure a brighter future for himself and his family, is to pursue a higher education.  Please consider helping Thapelo afford a Boiler Making class that will open up countless opportunities for him in South Africa, as well as in the United States.
For a young man without a high school diploma, it can be very difficult to find work. Many of us know Thapelo from the many years he spent working at the Centre for Animal Rehabilitation and Education (C.A.R.E.), but he is now ready to move in a different direction. Thapelo and his fiancé, Molly Jorges, plan to move to the United States later this year. This class will give Thapelo a chance to gain valuable skills, as well as receive a certification that will make him a real asset in the workplace. 

Please consider donating toward Thapelo's fund, the full course, including living expenses, will cost $1450.00, a small price to pay for a brighter future.
